May 26 (GMM) Adrian Newey looks set to stay at Red Bull for the foreseeable future.

The 51-year-old Briton joined the Austrian team from McLaren in 2006, and as chief technical officer is widely credited for the success of the dominant RB6.

Germany’s Sport Bild claims Newey, arguably the most sought-after figure in the entire world of formula one, intends to stay put.

“Contractual matters are confidential, but it’s true,” team boss Christian Horner said of the report.

“Last year, Adrian requested to remove a clause that would have ended his contract this year,” he revealed.

Former grand prix winner Gerhard Berger backs the move, insisting that Red Bull will remain on the pace “as long as Newey and Vettel are there”.
